You may need something smaller than that Sehm.... It's blowing a hoolie too....

I might go windsurfing this morning then head off to the hills around midday.

I am off school and have decided to go out and play about with my kitebuggying friend. We'll probably end up kiting, sledging and buggying. Any tips for a "proper" kite virgin?

you seem to have a lot more than we do here in brum; maybe 2cm outside and its not big flakes just like powder; never mind will have to go to sutton park to try out the kites
anyone coming?

We've got a few inches here on the beach, but there must be at least a foot in the hills... And it is complete white-out conditions at the moment...

It was good here, until the farmer shouted....

"GET OFF MY LAND"..... No, really he did!

The surf is good too.


jamesy101 - 8-2-2007 at 17:09

YES! I had a great day of sledging today and I am praying for school to be closed tomorrow. I should be down for the surf comp this weekend and will surely pop in myself. Thanks for the conditions update Al.

Almost a year since this last 'snows here' thread started.

Anyone betting on the arrival this season ?

It should be about midday on Thursday.
It should be about that time that I arrive at the slopes in Switzerland
